It has been almost exactly one-year since ‘South Park: The Stick of Truth’ was announced at E3 2012. Now at E3 2013, Obsidian sets a release date for this holiday season.
It could make things a lot harder on the publisher, last holiday season was the end of a console generation, there were fewer games being released and fewer larger-ticket items to purchase on the market. Now the game will have to go up against a brand new console, and brand new console launch titles.
It was South Park’s Eric Cartman, who stated the 360, PS3 and Windows PC title would launch this holiday season “or some holiday season sometime soon, you know how video games work.” Yes we do Cartman, yes we do. I would say it’s more like see you this holiday season, or never again.
